Last Mile Delivery by Canada Post and UBI Smart Parcel Canada Service Affected by Severe Weather Conditions

21 Feb 2017

Recently, many e-sellers have received notification that the delivery of their mail packages within Canada will be delayed by up to 2 months due to backlogs and severe weather conditions.

Based on industry sources, the principal cause of backlogs arises from Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) recently stepping up their surveillance on mail packages.

UBI Smart Parcel Canada Service performs customs clearance via commercial channel and is not affected by the above new measures from CBSA. In addition, as the UBI Smart Parcel Canada Service is a dedicated service developed jointly with Canada Post, packages under this shipment channel will enjoy priority delivery when weather conditions improve.
